The aces turned into ashes in ashes. What could be the reason? Leave cricket technicalities for a moment. They were not at all thinking about loosing for sometime as winning was their habit. But then came the ICC Super series. AUS Versus World XI. Probably they sensed their chance of being defeated by the Rest of the World. The very thought of defeat could have made Aus weaker. And the Result...Ashes!!!
So never ever think of defeat!!! But isnt required to be prepared for the worst? Don't worry Ganguly will do that
